Road Trip to North Carolina...

Since we were not going to be taking a BIG family vacation with my side of the family this year, we decided to take a couple of days and drive up to North Carolina to visit my brother and his family (before they move back to VA). It was a loooooonngggg drive up since we left late Thursday afternoon, hit traffic before getting to Melbourne and didn't stop until about 2 am!! Before leaving we bought Kelsey a DVD player for the car, only to be used on trips. It was pretty much her first time watching movies and she was zombied just like we thought she'd be.

We had such a good time just hanging out. Kelsey loved playing with her cousins Dylan and Allison. They helped me wake her up everyday from naps and in the morning. Dylan and Allison both took Kelsey for rides in Allison's car. Kelsey kept asking for a ride and probably would've driven herself if she was old enough. She loved it. They played in the kids' playroom. Allison taught Kelsey how to play tea party.

On Monday the kids had to go to camp before Kelsey got up. When I woke her up she said "Dylan and Allison come in?" "Where are Dylan and Allison?" I told her they were at school and when we went downstairs and she saw no one (daddy went with Uncle Michael to drop the kids off) she said "no one's here!"

On Tuesday we left in the AM to come home. It was another looonnnnggg drive, but Kelsey was very good. She even asked me to turn the video off at one point and she just played for a bit. She asks almost everyday about her video, but we have told her it is only for when we go on trips (that means not just around town).
